Update Services

There are a number of ping services that aggregate information about recently updated blogs. In other words, they let people know that you've posted something new. WordPress uses the XML-RPC protocol to ping these sites every time you publish a post. If you've just installed WordPress, you'll see one service listed here, Ping-o-matic. It's a central site that feeds into lots of other services.

If you want to go beyond Ping-o-matic, take a look at the list of ping services maintained by Vladimir Prelovac at www.prelovac.com/vladimir/wordpress-ping-list. If you use Feedburner, you can also add their Pingshot service to your list.
